Brooklyn Tab

Whenever I start to slide into thinking the Reformed Church is the present-day equivalent of the remnant, I remind myself of The Brooklyn Tabernacle in NYC.

Jim Cymbala is the pastor. His book Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire is kindling for just that.

He's not a Calvinist (though see his comments on 9/11 in this interview).

For that matter, neither is the man who has had a greater personal impact on my own spiritual development, outside my family, among those living--Lyle Dorsett.

I think that's really good practice--to work at learning from people who may not believe exactly as we do. I've been in churches where that was a danger and people felt there really wasn't anything to learn from those in other denominations.
